The White City Theatre Project CIC, White City

Weekly youth drama group in White City celebrates new funding.


The White City Theatre Project are celebrating receiving a grant from People’s Health Trust of £41,773, using money raised by The Health Lottery London West.


This two-year project will continue existing weekly drama sessions for young people aged 9-19 years, living on the White City Estate in West London. The aim is for participants to engage in arts activities, increase their confidence and build relationships with people of different ages and backgrounds.


Around 50 young people will attend the sessions over the course of two years. The groups will devise their own performances and work together to present these to the wider community every summer. Older group members are also encouraged to volunteer and support the younger groups as they develop. The project aims to address low educational attainment, social or emotional isolation and general community work.


Chris Lunn, the spokesperson for The Health Lottery in London West, said: “We are delighted that money raised through The Health Lottery London West is supporting important local projects. Already, over £7.4 million has been raised for Health Lottery London West, which helps to make a huge difference for these local good causes groups.


Health Lottery London West is benefitting from Health Lottery tickets sold for all draws held between 1 June and 30 June 2019. You can purchase Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at www.healthlottery.co.uk, or from over 32,000 local retailers including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
